Gary Sommer, Attorney at Law

My grandfather was a probate attorney. When I was young he told a story about an estate he had helped to administer. At the end of the estate he presented a bill for his services to the widow, who could not afford to pay for the services. But shortly before the man died he had purchased a new electric razor for which the widow had no use. The widow offered the razor to my grandfather, which he accepted in full payment of his bill.

That was a different time, and I do not work for electric razors. But that story informs my legal practice in the areas of business, corporate and transactional law; real estate; health care law; and probate litigation.

I am native to Toledo, Ohio, and have resided in the suburban City of Sylvania, Ohio with my family since 1989. I graduated from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio with dual majors in psychology and sociology, and was an Articles Editor for The University of Toledo Law Review while attending law school. I am interested in local community activities, including volunteer service on the Sylvania Zoning Board of Appeals, and a community organization that operates programs for senior citizens and pre-school children.
